Website Design

HTML 5.0
HTML5, the next major revision of HTML, the language of the internet, is set to revolutionize the way web developers and designers create websites and the way visitors use them.

Development of HTML stopped in 1999 with HTML 4 and was brought back to life when three major browser vendors—Apple, Opera, and the Mozilla Foundation—came together as the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WhatWG) to develop an updated and upgraded version of classic HTML.

Old elements like <div> remain, but now HTML markup elements include <section>, <header>, <footer>, <nav>, <article> and more. New media elements include <audio>, <video>, <source>, <embed> and <track>. All these new elements are easily learned by simple analogy with elements the designer already understands.

Very importantly, HTML 5 was explicitly designed to degrade gracefully in browsers that don't support it. Browsers now have tabs, CSS, and XmlHttpRequest, but their HTML renderers are stuck in 1999. The Web can't move forward without accounting for the installed base. HTML 5 understands this. It offers real benefits to page authors today while promising even more to page readers tomorrow as browsers are upgraded.
